An equation of a line can be expressed in many ways – Slope Intercept, Standard or Point-Slope. Here we will discuss Point-Slope Equation of a Line.
The Point Slope Equation of a Line Formula
m is the slope of the line.
x1 is the co-ordinate of x-axis.
y1 is the co-ordinate of y-axis.
(x1,y1) = (3,5)
The formula for the equation of a line is,
y – y1 = m (x – x1)
y – 5 = 8 (x – 3)
y – 5 = 8x – 24
8x – y = 19
8x – y – 19 = 0
